Competitive exam is all about perfect planning of your time, proper weightage to every subject and so much practice of various examples and practice tests. Like, When you are preparing for SSC CHSL 2015 exam you need to think about all the four subjects which are asked into this exam and how much time you have to clear all the concepts of these four subjects and prepare from what material and which books. Let’s start with the time.
How much time do you have to make preparations to crack SSC CHSL 2015
The July has gone more than halfway and you have about 8-10 days into that. Exam dates for SSC CHSL 2015 are 01.11.2015, 15.11.2015 and 22.11.2015. In that way, you have about 100 to 125 days to prepare for the exam. That seems a lot of time, no. Yes, it is a lot of the time. When we look at the course for SSC CHSL Exam, 100 to 125 days are enough. Don’t be too relaxed though. Time is not just for you, it is for every candidate who is competing to crack SSC CHSL 2015 exam. Every candidate would try to use this time to score heavily and secure a nice government job. You should also use this time intelligently and diligently and try to prepare best and score as high as possible. Now, let’s see how you could use this time into preparation of SSC CHSL.
For material ( objective questions and examples ) of various subjects, check below mentioned sections.
How to divide the time when you are preparing for SSC CHSL 2015
Before dividing the time for preparation for every subject, you should analyse your skill and knowledge level in every concerned subject. Different people have different requirement of time when it comes to preparation of subjects like Maths/Q.A., Reasoning or English. Assuming that you would prepare for 10 hours a day ( come on, this is not too much if you want a good job ), let’s see how you should divide the time.
Before reading further, note that, You can’t be too sure about scoring very good in general awareness section and so you should continue reading about that on a fixed time daily from good books (Check out the one we suggested below) and magazines without thinking too much about score as it is more about luck on the day of exam. But, You would most probably score above average in General Awareness section if you have been reading regularly and maintained a decent level of General Awareness. We would not include that into preparation plan. Also, you should keep using all the extra time reading about general awareness when you can’t do other subjects but you are mentally free. I mean, while you are travelling, eating, walking you should use that time into reading, watching, listening about General awareness along with that activity.

- If you are good in Mathematics, for example, you were scoring above 80 in your secondary or higher secondary school years ( or SSC and HSC exams ), you should give average time to mathematics/Q.A. section and focus on scoring heavily in Reasoning and English by giving equal time. . In this situation, the standard combination of time should be 35% for Maths/Q.A., 35% for Reasoning and 30% for English respectively. That means, from your 10 hours you should give 3.5 hours to Maths/Q.A., 3.5 hours to Reasoning and remaining 3 hours to English.
- If you are just above average in Mathematics, for example, you were scoring in the range of 60-80 in your secondary or higher secondary school years ( or SSC and HSC exams ), you should give some more time to mathematics/Q.A. section while also focusing on scoring good in Reasoning and English by giving enough time.In this situation, the standard combination of time should be 40% for Maths/Q.A., 30% for Reasoning and 30% for English respectively. That means, from your 10 hours you should give 4 hours to Maths/Q.A., 3 hours to Reasoning and remaining 3 hours to English.
- In any other situation, you should stick to the above combination. If you are below average in Mathematics till now, there is a less chance of getting high score in that section. In that situation, you should concentrate on getting a good or above average score in Maths and try to get more marks in other sections. By giving 40% of time to Maths and focusing on your strong chapters, you should get a fair score in Maths. With a good score in other sections, you can clear the written test and ultimately crack SSC CHSL 2015.
